Police in Rajasthan's Jaisalmer district have booked two people working at a community health centre (CHC) in Ramgarh for alleged negligence during a woman's delivery, resulting in the baby's body being split into two.
The baby's father, alleged that staff at the community health centre in Jaisalmer's Ramgarh didn't inform him about the botch-up.
While delivering the child, one of the nurses was said to have "pulled so hard" that the baby was split into two parts last January 6 in a community health center in Ramgarh, reports The Hindustan Times. Meanwhile, Kanwar is said to be fighting for her life in the hospital.
The incident was reported from Jaisalmer's Ramgarh.
Gynecologist Ravindra Sankhla said he was told the baby was delivered and just the placenta remained in the womb.
When he thought something was wrong, he then referred her to another hospital in Jodhpur.
A nurse pulled out the newborn with enormous force during the delivery, the parents alleged.
"The reports from the Ramgarh health centre stated that delivery had been done".
Both men have been suspended and an internal investigation is now underway.
She was then transferred to Ummed Hospital in nearby Jodhpur, where doctors thinking they were recovering the placenta, were shocked to discover the foetus' dismembered head.
Dr Usha Duggad, principal medical officer at Jawahar government hospital said it was a rare case.
The woman's relatives were informed and her husband filed a complaint against the Ramgarh hospital staff.
However, no arrest has been made in the connection with the case as yet.
'When questioned, the hospital staffers handed over the lower part of the foetus to us.
